What’s good everybody?
Thanks for staying posted with me, it’s been a wild summer, and it’s
still going, so let’s get all the music in we can!
Come down if you’re up for a late night hang(and you know who you
are), I’m rocking a different kind of vibe, more experimental this
Thursday at the historic St. Nick’s Pub in Harlem. There’s a nice back
patio for relaxing conversation, and a chill room vibe if you’re a
newcomer to this jazz oasis. We hit at 10pm, and we do a couple of
extended sets. NO COVER CHARGE!!
St Nick’s Pub-southwest corner of 149th and St. Nicholas
10pm first set
This Thursday, August 24th
